Very Dangerous Sidewalk-Pothole In Angeles City, Philippines


Recommended Posts

While these picture were not taken in Pattaya, I thought I'd share this here as I've seen things along similar lines in Pattaya.


During a recent trip to Angeles City, I brought a friend along, who visited the Philippines for the very first time.


Within one hour of our arrival in Angeles City, we were walking along Fields Avenue.  I was looking about at the intersection across from the Mansoon Drug store, and slowly walking forward, when my friend halts me, as he noticed this giant pothole, which I didn't.  It scares me to think of what might have happened if he wasn't there to stop me.


The hole is about ten-feet in depth, and looks like a death trap.

For days, or during the duration of my stay there, literally nothing was done about this gaping hole, not even fenced off with a caution sign.  It amazed me that this went week(s) without being tended to.  I'll be in Angeles again next week and it'll be interesting to see what, if anything, has been done.


See Pictures below.


Be careful out there.

There is a story on Thai Visa today about a Brit who fell into a deep hole in Northern Bangkok. With his friends fortunately who called rescue squad to pull him out. No money in Philippines for repairs, most of it stolen by the politicians I think. There was a very deep hole outside Dr Holmes bar, in Angeles right on the corner of the main road and it went unrepaired for over 6 months.

They'll probably use straws to fix it ... Oh wait no, that's for broken flush handles.

Not much better than some of the main roads in the UK now!

A pothole my arse, that a sinkhole .... There's a difference... They bury you six feet under... If someone falls in there no telling if they will emerge unscathed
